Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA)

STEP ONE - File your FAFSA! This is how you apply for the Federal Pell Grant, federal student loans and federal work-study. If you complete it by June 30th you are also applying for State of Alaska student aid.

Even if you don't think you will qualify for grants, or don't desire to take out loans, having a FAFSA on file is required to be considered for state grants and university scholarships. 

Every student should file a FAFSA!

Scholarships & Other Funding Sources

STEP TWO - Research and apply for scholarships and other types of supplemental financial aid.  These include campus-based scholarships and tuition waivers, University of Alaska scholarships, community and tribal scholarships, and potential regional and national funding opportunities.

Scholarships are based on a variety of criteria, and not all require financial need or an exceptional GPA. 

Good Luck!

VA Education Benefits

STEP THREE - If you are a veteran or qualified dependent, you may qualify for VA Education benefits!  Find out where to apply for VA education benefits, and for information on how to begin using your benefits at Kodiak College.

Students receiving VA benefits are also eligible to apply for federal financial aid, and may also apply for scholarships.

Thank you for your service!
